Citations are given only to motorists caught by the cameras - is incorrect. they are given to a registered owner of the vehicle. USE your rights and demand trial by jury, it is the city that has to prove who was driving, let that figure into the cost of issuing tickets and collections.

Lead by example, time to evaluate those that do the evaluating. Start with state government oversight. School funding would sound like a topic that was to be addressed but never happened by those that are paid to make decisions. Getting a better education in this area, does that sound like it will happen? Most employers will train for the desired position and knowing past history or politics is NOT one of the criteria. If the federal guidelines get their way, $15/ hr will become the minimum. The true smart ones of today learn how to work the system and earn nothing and make the most of all of the entitlements that have better care than those of us that work and live pay to pay.

OBVIOUSLY you don't understand the point! The driver is NOT ticketed, it is the vehicle owner whether you are driving is something the state has to prove for you to be guilty. WAKE up , it is just another city cash income that the government will never end at a chance to take more money from the public taxpayer! You will find that out when you are paying, and you weren't even there!

already proven in court:The basic operation problem is that handheld laser speed guns must take two separate measurements of distance to generate a speed estimate. If, while taking a speed reading, an officer's hand twitches slightly, the laser beam can "slip" from one portion of a vehicle to another. The extra distance measured in the second reading is then added to the calculation that determines the speed readout. For example, if the speed gun's aim point slips from the windshield to the grill, the speed reading will read 8 MPH too high

Concerning the lodging tax, OHIO law states that the residence must be rented to " transient guests " which means part time residence, has nothing to do with how often the money is collected. The article states the rental has been ongoing for 1 family. Nice try, but as usual:Government intervenes and thinks it is always in their favor to collect money whether it is due or not, and this time it is not!

What part of SPEEDERS is it that the vindicator articles don't understand? Speeders are drivers, license plate numbers are vehicles. The arresting officers have to identify the speeder to prove guilt and have a fine. The owner does not have to identify who may have been driving at the time of the infraction as private citizens are not a policing agency. EVERYONG should demand trial by jury it is your right! Let the city finance that since they have the extra money from those that pay the fine.

Say what? The article states that without the levy the district would lose $20 m over 4 years, but with the levy it would generate a surplus of $25m by 2020. In other words,, give us the money and we can find a place to spend it. The state demands a takeover, give it to them, NO MONEY, NO TAX, and let the outsider figure out what to do, Inform REINHARD, the UP side of voting against the levy will be: $50,000 home $164 per year back in the taxpayers pocket.

It only takes 1 of the 64 that filed for appeal to show the government thieves that a person is not guilty by association as the car owner and not the driver that was doing the speeding.The government has the burden of proof that has to be met to prove who was driving! Your rights also include trial by jury, that effort alone costs the city. The city has officers to send out on this money collection ,,and want to proclaim a new stream of income, time to vote NO on tax issues, they are receiving extra income from fines, so lower the taxes!! No one from government addresses that, it is just another grab and the money will disappear as usual.

Maybe the big question is : who is watching the government that is doing the watching? Seems that money always just disappears when it comes to helping the citizens, but always in the budget to form a committee to oversight what they want to look at and never enough to do what they are expected to accomplish as in state education funding that was ruled unconstitutional 10 yrs ago, but nothing done.

The vindy article is incorrect, if it were correct there would be NO argument.It is NOT the speeders that are given the citation, it is the vehicle's owner by license association that receives the citation. The government's responsibility has to prove that you (a person ) are guilty of speeding and not just association by owning a vehicle. Has been proven by state supreme courts in other state's rulings . YOUR rights are being violated by money grab, demand trial by jury and set the city backlog for their $100 fine and costs.
